Welcome to Slugger Live, direct from the Institute of Governance at Queens University Belfast. Mick has sent the executive jet to pick me up from Dublin and whisked me here in style to bring to you the events as they unfold.
As the panel and audience are filing in with canapes and glasses of Veuvre Cilquot, we’ll start getting down to brass tacks.
Any questions yet? Add them in the comments below.Dan McGinn of PA, Alex Kane of the Newsletter, Chris Thornton of the Belfast Telegraph and Brian Feeney of the Irish News are our panel, chaired by your own Mick Fealty, sans beard.
We’ll be bringing you more as the event begins…but get your questions in now!
For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.
Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.
While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.
If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
